In this episode, Stacy and Boyd talk about the word ACCEPTANCE. Self acceptance and Others acceptance. We want to encourage you to know yourself so that you can grow yourself, do your own thinking and stand up for YOU! We ask the questions, "would you recognize you if you ran into you?" "Would you accept the you that you see?" "What do you like about you?" "What would you improve?" In being accepting of others we simply need to see things from others perspective. See the best in others by placing a "10" on their heads. It's up to them to live up to that 10.

Episode 123 - Mike Iamele
Episode 123 Stacy and Boyd get to speak with Mike Iamele from the Boston, Mass part of the world. I think that the conversation we had with Mike is a conversation we all need to have with ourselves. Have you ever tried being someone you are not? How did that work out for you? For most, it doesn't work out very well! Have you ever tried being yourself? Stop for a minute!! That was a trick question. In our conversation, Mike reminds us that "you never have to TRY to be yourself!" I think he is on to something.

Episode 122 Stacy and Boyd spend some time with Drew Gerald. He's been a special guest on our podcast before, we invited him back to banter this word with us - GRACE. It's how you flow through the world. As Stacy so nicely puts it, it "cleans your side of the street." We ask the questions: Does our need for grace and our willingness to extend it to others measure up? Do you give grace before or after it's needed? Is it ever too early? Can it be too late? Fasinating conversation! See what you think.
